what i love about winter is wool
and what i'm looking forward to is the 20th of january
because that feels like the real new beginning
i can't wait...

i'll leave you for this week
with a winter garland

and a chair i very much like
saw it in a store combined
with a purple cushion in
the same fabric

i'm mordanting the fabric this week
so next week will be more fun
because i can start dyeing (is there another word for that?)

riihivilla is a blog about dyeing wool
with plants wood flowers

have a warm weekend !

Loraine, now I am wondering what is going to happen on the 20th... Did I miss something.
Thanks over and over for finding the site about dying wool. It is a treasure.
All the best for you.
